. that shows the hurdles that mitt romney has, even though the race is close. >> we talked about early voting and we know as i mentioned ohio and several other states have to correct the math if i'm wrong here, hard to keep up at this point, i think it's around 30, so many states with early voting at this point. this is before the big debate and millions of eyes will be on the debate, whether in its long form or clicking on to clips that will hit the internet within minutes of it coming out of the candidate's mouth? >> that early voting is why this debate is probably more important for mitt romney than the ones we're going to see in the next couple weeks. tamron, the numbers are, there are 32 states as of today that are voting in some form or fashion, absentee or early in person voting. some tomorrcome tomorrow when y ohio and other states, we'll be at 35 states across the country. more than half the country will be voting. >> it's interesting, mark, i love your analysis and don't want to put you on the spot, but at this point 37 days until election day what has struck you most about the swin

, and this is an interesting race for many reasons in virginia. the problem in virginia for the romney campaign is they're on the defensive on all the issues, on theeconomy, women's issues, national security, all of issues that are important they're on the defensive right they don't have an iue opening to pressba campaign on in virginia. they're behind on the economy, which was supposed to be president obama's weakness. so i think they're really in trouble in virginia we've seen a slip on the part of the romne campaign since the conventionsohart convention bounces, it turned into a convention slide in virginia. we have a series of polls out now that show the gap widening between obama and romney. i think the rney campaign needs to find anpening, a ga to shoot in virginia on that issue. they need to press that gap. >> it's interesting you say that the spokesperson for the rnc in saz said obviously in 2008 we got our clock cleaned here and got caught flat foolted. we're just casng a real wide atyokef that statement, professor? >> well, it may be a wide net, but it's not capturing anything. in the latest

science professor in virginia. thank you so much for your time. we have romney and obama in virginia right now. we have this segment called purple rain for a rain. it's solidly purple, and this is an interesting race for many reasons in virginia. what are you watching? >> the problem in virginia for the romney campaign is they're on the defensive on all the issues, on the economy, women's issues, national security, all of issues that are important they're on the defensive right now. they don't have an issue opening to press the obama campaign on in virginia. they're behind on the economy, which was supposed to be president obama's weakness. so i think they're really in trouble in virginia. we've seen a slip on the part of the romney campaign since the convention, so whatever that convention bounces, it turned into a convention slide in virginia. we have a series of polls out now that show the gap widening between obama and romney. i think the romney campaign needs to find an opening, a gap to shoot in virginia on that issue. they need to press that gap. >> it's interesting you say that the

in the last 24 hours. cnn shows president obama around 49% to 50%. mitt romney in the mid-40s or so. so that's actually been a very stable race so far. it will be interesting to see if our own nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows that same type of margin. and i will say and our pollsters make this point to us how stable this contest has been. we've remarked how it didn't change that much in the spring and summer. it changed a little bit in the conventions, but stability is probably going to be the one word we remember from this presidential race when we look back on it. >> wow. mark, thank you very much. great pleasure. i can't wait to see the rest of the results from in new poll on "nightly news" tonight. thanks, mark. >> thank. >> we mentioned at the top of the hour a judge in pennsylvania put a temporarily hold on a tough voter i.d. law ordering it not be enforced in this year's presidential election. there's another large group of potential voters, 4.5 million people according to a new report, who are not allowed to vote. their felons who served time in jail. almost half of those affecte

estate's political bias. is romney looking do you think though for any excuse now to explain why he's down in this race given the economic circumstances in the country that everyone's been talking about and the fact that that should be a strong suit and winning on that? >> igt. well, i mean, look. everyone knows that predominant amount of the media will vote democratic in this election. i mean, that's been pretty much proven by every poll and statistic out there. >> what was that? >> white house press corpse votes democratic. most of the white house press corps votes democratic. that's nothing new. don't whine an it. you know the battlefield you're entering in to. what you have got to go is shift the bat toll the ground you want to battle upon and focus on the economy, focus on the failures of this president and as i mentioned before the self inflicted wound to them pretty bad for mitt romney because it undergirds the stereotype. he needs to shift focus to the already there stereotype of barack obama. he's a nice guy but way over his head. you want a beer with him, that's fine. but

. is it that simple? is the problem at the end of the day that it's the candidate himself? it's mitt romney who perhaps isn't what some thought he would be in terms of a candidate? >> i think it's some of the intangibles that surround the race, but i think largely it's the candidate himself. the problem, as i perceive it, is he's trying to please too many different bosses. he had to attack far to the right craig to win the primary process. he survived it. i thought there was going to be a leftward move towards the center to put him more where he was at the governor of massachusetts. it's come in drips and drags, but there's too many mitts. that's the problem. i disagree with something said. people know him by now. he's running for two years. they're still having a hard time putting this guy in a particular column on different issues. >> is part of it, michael, that he's not an idea log at his core, and he had to pretend to be something he is not for so long? is that part of it, you think? >> i don't know what it is, but that's what i suspect that it is. i think at his core he's a guy that reall
